2010 Glamour Women Of The Year Awards

Here are just a few of the looks from the 2010 Glamour Women Of The Year Awards which was held at Berkeley Square in London last night.

Lily Allen used to be the belle of these balls. Now she just fades into the background.

Her black Chanel Pre-Fall 2010 dress with sheer sleeves is nice, but forgettable.

Amanda Holden looks nice in her white strapless dress, but I really dislike her mis-match accessories.

Naomie Harris looked stunning in her black and gold embellished dress which has an Egyptian feel to it.

I’m not sure what Diana Vickers is wearing, because I can’t get past those god-awful vintage Ossie Clarke shoes.

“Sheer Infusion Newcomer” Alexandra Burke also opted for an ethnic-inspired black and gold look.

Her beaded black velvet cape was perfectly accessorized with gold jewels and a stunning armlet.

New mum Denise van Outen wore a very summery Alexander McQueen dress, which she paired with silver pumps and a black Chanel bag.

“Radio Personality of the Year” Fearne Cotton opted for a bold colour in this tomato red Roland Klein sheer dress with black studded pumps.

“UK TV Actress of the Year” Billie Piper wore a long black lace trimmed dress which she paired with gold accessories and a stunning Lara Bohnic clutch.

Pixie Lott was my least favourite at this event.  Normally she’s more inspiring.

The same goes for Kelly Rowland.  Her Roberto Cavalli LBD and black pumps combo is just tres boring for me.

More exciting looks to follow…

Runway To 2010 Brit Awards – Lily Allen In Chanel

Last night Lily Allen was one of the many performers at the 2010 Brit Awards in London.

She walked the red carpet sporting an Anna Wintour style bob and a Chanel Pre-Fall 2010 black gown.

The black gown itself is exquisite.

I love the high red embroidered neckline and the jeweled detail on the waist, but this gown is too grand for Lily Allen.

Cate Blanchett and Erin O’Connor would’ve looked so statuesque in this gown, but Lily barely pulls it off.

Sometimes I get the Chanel Lily collabo, but on this occasion it didn’t quite work for me.

Cute bob though.

Runway To “The Morgans Awards” – Lily Allen In Prada

What would Uncle Karl say?

Lily Allen who’s known for her love of Chanel, was this week spotted wearing a Prada Pre-Fall 2009 mini burgundy dress when she attended “The Morgan Awards” in London.

The mini dress is sprinkled in deep burgundy paillettes, has a v-shaped neckline and some added detail on the shoulders.

I LOVE the Lily’s version.

She would’ve looked so uncomfortable in the runway version with that architectural skirt.

It’s currently fr-fr-fr-freezing in London, so tights were mandatory in this tiny barely there mini.

Are you loving or hating this look?

Who Wore Alberta Ferretti Better? Lily Allen or Eva Mendes

Back in December 2008 we got a first look at the new improved, grown up Lily Allen.

She sported shiny new hair extensions and she looked very sophisticated wearing a stunning teal chiffon fringed dress from the Alberta Ferretti Spring 2009 collection.

The singer was attending PR guru Matthew Freud’s Christmas with a stellar guest list including Guy Richie, Sir David Frost, Lord Andrew Lloyd-Webber, David Furnish, Guy Ritchie and Jemima Khan.

During Venice Film Festival Eva Mendes was the guest of honour at the “Bad Lieutenant: Port Of Call New Orleans” Party which was hosted by designer Alberta Ferretti.

Eva wore the same fringed dress with nude peep-toes.

As sexy as Eva looks, I loved Lily transformation and I think it’s the best she has ever looked so she wins for me.

The Q Awards

Pixie Lott looked adorable wearing a Gucci Fall 2009 black and silver dress, with black feathered detail on the shoulders.

She opted out of the runway belt, which actually works much better for her.

Surprisingly I don’t mind the tights here.

It’s been a very long while since we last saw Corinne Bailey Rae on the red carpet – February 2008 to be precise.

She’s bounced back from her grief to return to the red carpet looking sensational wearing a black and forest green striped Moschino Cheap & Chic Fall 2009 dress with black ankle strapped heels.

I love the dress, but I’m so jealous of her hair.

I wish mine would blow-out like that.

I’m not a Lily Allen fan by any stretch of the imagination, but I do love the new shag.

I’m going to the hair salon later today, so I may take this picture along for inspirational.

I also like Lily’s simple look in which she wore a long-sleeved ivory beaded dress with black leggings.

She completed her look with YSL sculpted platform pumps.

Sophie Ellis Bextor and her husband Richard Jones walked the red carpet together, as they often do.

Sophie wore a black Dolce & Gabbana velvet and satin dress with voluminous shoulders which we’ve seen on the red carpet before.

She completed her look with Christian Louboutin Eugenie heels and a snake-print clutch.

As always Sophie oozes class and sophistication.

I can deal with Fearne Cotton’s Olivia Rubin embroidered tulip peplum dress, but her leopard print ankle boots are just hideous.

Amy Winehouse attended with her god-daughter Dionne Bromfield.

Amy seemed to be in good spirits showing her new…pink Preen dress.

My…hasn’t she grown since being out of the spotlight.
